I ordered my 2016 350R on Nov 19, 2015. It was produced April and stolen early May 2016. Re-ordered a 2017 model later than month. And today, 10 months later, it has finally arrived. Welcome HR128!.

Exterior:
I've stalked all google images, all instagram pictures, this forum and all of youtube for the past year. I've even seen the Black with black stripes R in person. But when I saw mine with the AG and black stripes with black roof, I was shocked how good looking it was, I couldn't believe it was a mustang. Pictures really don't do this car justice, and I couldn't believe it was mine. The dream finally came true.

Interior:
Alcantara steering wheel - very sexy
R Recaro seats - fits me perfectly
A/C - check
The rest - don't really care

Sound:
Funny enough, I was escorted to the dealership in a Tesla haha. Normal mode was quieter than expected which was good. Sport mode......giggle factory and all 10 months of pain disappeared. Rev match down shifting produced the best sounds ever. Cruising on the highway was very quiet, I don't think its any louder than my dd civic.

Brakes/Transmission:
Brakes feels great, slightly better than my '15 GT PP. The shifting and clutch felt very smooth and super easy to learn and drive. Definitely better than the GT PP.

This was just from 20 miles of driving. Will update when I drive more.

Here are some pics of course :) Enjoy! I will post more when I have better light.

Great color/stripe choice! I am guessing by your avatar and your username that you are jamaican?

Looks great! I ordered the same color combo to include the black roof. Enjoy it!

Edited to add: you had one of those stolen cars taken off the flat rock yard? Glad it worked out.

You are correct, I am Jamaican. Born and raised.

Thank you everyone, and yes I was one of the 6 that got stolen. I think of it as a blessing in disguise though.

And I will drive it like I stole it. I used to race shifter karts in Jamaica.

I knew I shouldn't have rescheduled my service appointment yesterday! Hope to see you around!
I'll be at the next Cars and Coffee for sure.
